Serious motor vehicle accidents are increasing across Maine

Accidents are increasing at an alarming rate on Maine roadways. Congested streets and highways combined with distracted, impaired or reckless drivers have contributed to higher numbers of motor vehicle accidents in recent years across the state. A three-vehicle accident in Freeport over the holiday weekend claimed the life of one man and injured several others.

Mother awarded $4 million in medical malpractice lawsuit

The top priority of all health care providers should be the health and safety of patients. Although technology and safety regulations in Maine and across the country have made medical procedures safer than ever before, sometimes it can seem that patient safety is not the main priority for some physicians. Recently, a mother in another state was awarded $4 million from a medical malpractice lawsuit she filed after her daughter's death.

4 tips for car accident avoidance

The vast majority of car accidents could have been avoided if one or more of the individuals involved had simply followed the rules of the road. This is a particularly distressing thought, especially if you or your loved one were injured or killed in an automobile collision.

Motorcycle accidents are more likely to result in serious injury

The abundance of scenic roadways across Maine make it a great state for motorcyclists. As the warmer months approach, motorcyclists will be traveling here from all over the country to enjoy the breathtaking views. However, unique risks and consequences are associated with motorcycles. Motorcycles can be more difficult to see than other vehicles, which can increase the odds of an accident. Also, since motorcyclists are totally exposed, so any accident involving a motorcycle is more likely to result in serious injury.

Man awarded almost $8 million in medical malpractice suit

Although not widely publicized, negligence in health care is one of the leading causes of death and injury in Maine and across the United States. It is true that technological advancements and stringent regulations have brought improvements to patient safety in recent years. However, when humans are involved there will always be a risk for mistakes. Recently, a man in another state was awarded almost $8 million from a lawsuit he filed against a medical facility after alleged medical malpractice left him permanently injured.

Is vaping more dangerous than we thought?

If you don't know what the word ''vaping'' means, it might be a good thing. Vaping, i.e., smoking electric cigarettes, is more popular than ever these days, but experts are concerned that vaping is much more dangerous than we initially believed.

Motor vehicle accidents in Maine are on the rise

Getting behind the wheel of a motor vehicle and going for a drive these days can be very risky. Currently, there are a little over one million licensed drivers in the state of Maine, with this number steadily increasing. This means more and more vehicles are sharing roadways across the state. With an increasing number of vehicles utilizing public roadways, motor vehicle accidents become almost inevitable. A recent car crash in Winthrop resulted in injuries to several people.
